Yoo hoo! Hello, Mother Nature!

I’ll be dating myself on this one, but I think Mother Nature’s needle is stuck.

Forties?  Really?


And I know the pretty gray skies look so nice with the green trees, but I also happen to think blue skies and bright sunshine look nice with green trees, too.  Remind me again what that looks like?

Today I am wearing my usual skirt and long sleeved t shirt, with tights,  a wool cardigan, and wool socks. After freezing yesterday in more seasonable clothes, I reverted to my winter uniform this morning.  And I am not too warm.

I (almost) wish I was. At least warm enough to take off the sweater.  Come on, Mother Nature, give it a shot.

  1. Cold here in the northeast area of MA also. I’ve been contemplating wearing a thin,wool hat when I walk the dog. I don’t think I’ve ever worn a hat in June!

    1. lol Just one with a bug net, right? Today is better, and tomorrow will be downright hot, but then it cools off again. I’ll have to scrub the pool tonight!

  2. Your fellow New Englander living in Spain is feeling cool temps that are unusual for the time of year, as well. Along with unusual rain. I’m from Maine, and Maine rhymes with Spain. So many things in common such as rhyming, such as being tired of tourists and tourist traffic. Yesterday I was wearing shorts and my legs got tanned just walking around, today I wore a coat.

    1. The rain in Spain stays MAINELY in the plain, right? lol. Today is a lovely day here, I am in semi spring clothes. No sandals yet… maybe tomorrow when it will hit high 70’s! Then back to cold and clammy for the weekend. I thought Spain was always sunny and lovely, sorry it isn’t!

  3. It’s been gloomy, drippy and darn chilly here in the Pocono mountains too. Really need to see some blue skies and feel the sun on my back!!

  4. I am not a big fan of summer but the weather this year is ridiculous. The tomato plants are especially sulky, while the spring plants like lettuce are happily over producing. To make matters worse, we have no honey bees this year. The two apiaries near us have no bees. So we are researching how to hand pollenate the plants this year. When the bees are missing that is a very bad signal about the state of the climate.

    1. I agree with you completely!!! Too much summer not good, not enough not good! And no bees? Very scary. But you can hand pollinate with a q tip- it is slow but it works. And plant things the pollinators love for next year, maybe some will come back.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
